Here are my projects created using the Swirlydoos' December kit.
This first project is based on this month's sketch (using a pic of my hubby and I).
I distressed the edges of the paper and tucked in some hidden lace here and there. I also lightly misted the background using a stencil. I added some metal brads around the page and added the TH metal word band that came in our kit. I painted the chippy with embossing powder and used lots of embellies.
Here is the sketch provided by our lovely sketch artist Beggahuna.
In this layout (I used a pic of my beautiful mother and handsome brother) I decided to use the lighter shades of white, yellow and green. I did some punching and ink distressing. I also made the large yellow flower using TH's tattered poinsettia die. I fussy cut the ornaments and added some bling to make them look like they are hanging. The background paper has a stencil painted with starburst sprays and also some gold crackling color by viva. I added some resins and chippies and brads.
This final layout I made (using a pic of my family) with two different shades. I did some hand stitching and of course, my paper distressing. The rub-on's and flowers came in our kit.
